Everything was white from the dinner and decor to guests' attire at the Fifth Annual Summer in Paris to benefit Beach House Family Shelter, an emergency shelter for women and families, founded by Mrs. Samuel (Helen Beach) Jones -- wife of former mayor "Golden Rule" Jones in 1921.

The June 18 event at Treo Restaurant in Sylvania was a din're blanche or white dinner, a traditional European celebration of the summer solstice. Emcee Sashem Brey of WTVG-TV, Channel 13 welcomed everyone. Champagne and hors d'oeuvres were followed by a multicourse meal with wines to match, including: chilled white asparagus, sole, and key lime pie.
